Hanson was hospitalized following a show in Dallas on Tuesday after complaining of sever pain in his chest and shoulders. He underwent surgery for a form of pulmonary embolism known as "paget-schroeder syndrome.”
The disease normally affects athletes whose upper body muscle development constricts the arteries from the heart and causes potentially fatal blood clots in the lungs.
The life-saving surgery was successful and he is expected to make a full and swift recovery. Hanson’s North American “Walk tour” in support of their new album of the same name will resume on 8th October in Tennesee.
